Relive Vince Carter's Iconic Dunk over Frederic Weis in the 2000 Olympics

Vince Carter dominated the NBA Slam Dunk Contest in 2000, but he pulled off his most impressive jam later that year in Sydney, Australia.

Representing Team USA in the 2000 Summer Olympics, Carter posterized France's Frederic Weis, a 7'2" center drafted the previous year by the New York Knicks. Instead of drawing a charge, the big man became infamous for the iconic jam.

"Sadly for me, I was on the video, too," Weis told ESPN.com's Michael Wallace and Rob Peterson in 2015. "I learned people can fly."

Although Team USA defeated France in the gold-medal game, Carter's dunk remains the summer's most remembered moment.
